Mameluke force for Egypt 1800

Posted by Fire at Will on 02 Oct 2019, 07:10

A lot of painting plus rebasing to get a better army organised to face the French in Egypt. It's a mix of various Strelets Mameluke and Bashi-Bazouk sets to create a consistent force to oppose my French in Egypt or Syria.

Cavalry, the skirmishers are rebased Bashi-Bazouks plus a couple of Mamelukes based so they can be either open or close order
Image

More cavalry, the back ranks are all Bashi-Bazouks that fit in well with the Mamelukes
Image

The infantry, all Strelets Bashi-Bazouks on foot. Not quite a complete set as I've kept some to create a skirmish unit
Image

As before, poor light and new camera have affected the picture quality.

I'm envious! I have these figures but I just can't get on with it when I'm faced with non-regular uniforms. Until I sort myself out, I'll just have to enjoy your magnificent display.

I have exactly the same problem, I just gather a very large batch together then add the same colour to a cross section of figures
